You might be wondering what on earth is a good Halloween costume for kids or pre-teens this year.

And costume parts that can be used for imagination play throughout the rest of the year.
My best friend on the other hand likes costumes you can make out card board boxes.
One year she made a cereal box costume with a hat that looked like a bowl – but I’m not that creative!
